We stayed at Paradise point with our 7 year old daughter for two nights at the beginning of our Seaworld/Legoland vacation and wished we stayed a couple more days. The property is a little dated, but we loved it. The staff was very friendly. We got into our room early (at noon). The room itself was nothing special; however, the... More

Quick summary: old/dated rooms, bad breakfast, no room service, long wait times, inexperience young part-time/holiday staff, general outdoor resort environment is nice, beach is dirty, no effort made to do anything exceptional at this hotel. My guess is this hotel is run for cash (probably has a heavy debt burden to pay off) and as guests you pay the price... More

Love the hotel! Great family spot. Check out the fireworks by the campfire at the beach!! All service providers are very friendly. We love visiting this location. It's quiet beautiful grounds and close drive to Pacific Beach and la Jolla.

Stayed at Paradise for 5 nights in mid-august 2014. This is a very nice hotel but not quite worthy of a 5 star hotel. We enjoyed our stay quite a bit. The hotel's decor and layout are great. This is a 1 story hotel where all the rooms are like cottages. The rooms surround a central lagoon that is tropical... More

Our family loved Paradise Point. It says a lot when my kids....who are old enough to experience and enjoy for themselves....don't want to leave at the end of a visit. Apart from being close to everything, the resort is just beautiful! Very relaxing, scenic, and right on the bay. Our family was able to rent a bike, kayak, enjoy the... More

For a mini vacation you can't beat this! Drive into a tropical setting with little bungalows. We stayed for only one night and planned to go to Sea World the next day. After checking in we went kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming, used the gym and had a four star dinner on the water. In the morning we took the water... More

I am a Chef in a 4 star 4 Diamond Hotel in Newport Beach Ca. From the moment my daughter (8) and I arrived she was ooohing and awing! Our front door and views were of sand and Mission Bay! We dressed in bathing suits and 40 steps later were swimming in the bay! Later we went to the local... More

The room rate is good for the location of the hotel. The extra charges are infuriating. A $34 per night "over night parking fee", a $24 "passport" fee, a $22 "room tax and assessment" fee, $4.17 "tourism Mrkt assessment", $2.54 "room tax assessment", $.48 "tourism Mrkt assessment". Wow! That adds up! Regarding the Passport Fee, the web site lists: unlimited... More

If your room is the basic rate for garden view, this is not worth the price at all. I am a frequent global traveler and have been to all levels of hotels. The resort is nice, but the room and the "garden view" are even worse than Holiday Inn Express'. Pros: - Location (close to downtown; beach resort and the... More

We stayed already several times at the Paradise Point (always in summer for family vacation) and we were never disappointed. The resort has a good variety of different pools, so that you always find one to swim. There are different whirlpools as well. There are some fire places where you can sit at night. Once a week (at least in... More
